9-11 Ring A Bell? Donny Doesn't Remember Why We Went Into Afghanistan

How clueless can a guy who lives in Manhattan possibly be?  

Discussing the Afghanistan war on Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch claimed "people weren't clear why we were there in the first place."

Uh, Donny . . .

Fortunately, the ever-affable Willie Geist was there to diplomatically offer Deutsch a brief history lesson.
WILLIE GEIST: Well, it was clear in the first months after 9-11.
Remember, Donny?  That little piece of the Manhattan skyline puzzle that's missing?  The Taliban regime in Afghanistan that harbored al Qaeda members who plotted it?  Hello?
